NBA 2K19: MyTeam Collection Rewards

Source: NBA 2K19

Collecting the strongest cards available in the game is the absolute pinnacle of getting a jaw-dropping team. But, it is essential to gather and collect even the base cards before you get the best cards.

Just like with other NBA 2k games, you must first go through hundreds of normal packages before you can start trading out for the stronger players in the rewards section. Collecting different cards in the MyTeam area allows for the chance to upgrade and unlock key players that will enhance and better your own team. 

Different tiers of Rewards

There are many different tiers of rewards that you can get from collecting the respective lower tier cards. These lower tier cards are generally the standard rosters of the 2K18-2K19 seasons. Players such as LeBron James on the Los Angeles Lakers team is considered a common card, as well as many others.

As you collect certain cards of each ranking, or complete sets, such as the complete Phoenix Suns roster and playbook, you will gain points and currency to redeem with the different tiers of rewards. Higher tiers require higher currency points, thus granting stronger players to put on the court.

You can’t just go straight to higher tiers, however. Instead, you have to unlock the lower top tier for a set number of times, and then you will be allowed to start redeeming the higher ranks. For instance, if you want to redeem a sapphire player, you’ll have had to redeem at least ten Emerald players first.

Here are just some of the rewards you can get through these systems.
